I get asked this question a lot. Supersedeas in its easiest terms means quick relief for the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Carrier. If Supersedeas is granted it means that your workers’ compensation lost wage benefits will be suspended until the final outcome of the case or the workers’ compensation insurance carrier will be able to recover money it paid out for medical expenses from a special fund. Always follow up with your lawyer whenever you receive a petition in the mail. Your lawyer will be able to determine if a Supersedeas Request has been made.
